The incident happened on Sunday afternoon when the woman went to withdraw some cash at the ATM to pay an auto rickshaw she had boarded. However, due to some glitch, she could not take out cash. It was when the accused came and offered to help but she refused to take any help from him but he kept on insisting, following which he misbehaved with her.
